‘Top reasons to custom build a tiny house,’ a new report from the Paso Robles contractor

  • Most manufacturers provide a choice of floorplans and home styles
  • Purchase often includes delivery and construction
  • Who submits the plan for permits and waivers from the city or county building departments?
  • Who is responsible for arranging for electricity, sewer and water hookups?
  • What if the building plans, as submitted, require changes?
  • Familiarity with the local permitting processes and can make sure the plans will meet code
  • A general contractor coordinates all of the necessary hookups and inspections
  • The tiny house can be designed exactly to your specifications
  • A local contractor can make design recommendations to save money and increase the efficiency of the tiny house
  • Is the ADU being installed with the intent to rent it for extra income. Some jurisdictions don’t allow ADUs to be rented or to be used as vacation/weekend rentals. Adding an extra room to the main house might be a better option.
  • Is it for an extra guest room for visiting friends and family? In this case, the contractor will most likely be able to suggest cost-saving design adjustments.
  • Is it going to be home for mom and dad? There may be mobility and safety issues to consider. Perhaps even accessibility issues such as wheelchair ramps and an ADA-compliant bathroom.
